Muse x2

Hi Everyone,

my Christmas card production is still in full swing.....so I am playing in a few more challenges. And I do love the Muse challenges - thankfully there is two of them now :)
My first one I made for the Muse Christmas Vision challenge where Kimberly Wiener made this glittery masterpiece. I did a redux of it, keeping it more mellow. 


The die cuts I used are by Memory Box, the sentiment is by Neat&Tangled, To get some glitter on my card I took a splatter stamp by Stamplorations - Mixed Media Elements and stamped it in Versamark over the sentiment and glittered it up with adhesive embossing powder and of course glitter.

Kimberley's card:
 

The glitter splotch really doe not come out in the picture...too bad. It sparkles quite wonderful in real life....


The baubles are cut from shimmer paper and I mounted the whole card on wood PP.

My second card is for the regular Muse challenge. Michele Fergusen created that brilliant card for us to CASE and as soon as I saw it I knew I had to play....


The Santa and sentiment are Paper Smooches, the paint strips are Papertrey, I colored the Santa with Copics and mounted him on foam tape. Added enamel dots.


You can see how I was inspired, right?

I hope you are not yet sick and tired of Christmas cards - I warn you - I have some more coming up....

Happy Stamping!

Der Weihnachtsmann ist ja köstlich!!! der zaubert jedem erst mal ein leichtes Lächeln ins Gesicht.
Die Christbaumkugelkarte gefällt mir aber auch ehr gut. Du bist ja schon wieder sooooo wahnsinnig fleißig, als wolltest du alles nachholen, was du in der vergangenen Wochen versäumt hast.
Doch ich muss den Finger heben: Vorsicht!!! Mach langsam, du weißt selber genau warum.
Liebe sorgsame Grüße,
Flo

Easter Egg and Bunny

Hi Everyone, I made a bunch of Easter cards, after all its little more than one month and I need to send them out in time... You see, they are all similar - using both the die cut and the negative, that I cut from a die cut egg. The cute bunnies got their yearly appearance - they are from Impression Obsession. the egg is by Lifestyle Crafts. The sentiment is by Papertrey. And here are bigger photos from this set: Linking up with Creative with Stamps - Easter The Paper Players - die cutting Die Cut Divas - animals Happy Little Stampers - anything goes with dies

Dandelion and Christmas Trees

Hi  Everyone, I am getting tired of making Christmas cards.... I needed a break from them. I love the inspiration picture for the current Sunday stamps challenge , so I pulled out my ancient Hero Arts stamp to make this card.  The sentiment is by Unity stamps. Did some masking and sponging. I also performed a little surgery on my stamp, as those falling dandelion seeds are attached to the main stamp. Just a little cut with my Exacto knife and I set them free! I am also linking up with: Mod Squad Challenge  - Anything but Christmas (exactly how I feel....) Happy Little Stampers Dec CAS Challenge   -  Favorite Technique (sponging is my favorite)    But I do have a Christmas card for you, in fact I  made two - they are slightly different - do you see it? My materials are: tree dies - Papertrey, sentiment - Simon Says stamps, some punches, gingham stamp - Stampin' up, PP cut with a die by Paper Smooches, added a little bit of Stickles to the tre
